Wow, great comments but sadly naive. We have now seen that government supports criminals and their actions by letting them out and giving them the presumption of innocence while others, like Michael Flynn, are presumed guilty. This sick wacko will be back out on the streets in no time because Governor "Coonman" who just proclaimed he is continuing to shut down Northern Virginia, will let him out. The true criminals are business owners that are trying to open back up. So we must, as pointed out, not only banned knifes, but cars, and hammers and screw drivers and ice picks and, oh what the heck just force everyone to stay at home. CASE CLOSED. Governor must GO!!


He’s not a sick wacko. They don’t write it how it really is he was my best friend.


He'll have his day in court.


Flynn confessed.


Ashburn, the new Virginia Harlem.


Maybe if knives were banned another senseless stabbing would have been prevented.


Dumb kid with a short fuss and a weapon in hand. He'll have a long time in prison to think about something he could have just walked away from. Now he has a felony scarlett letter attached to his name for life.


I went to high school with this kid! I knew he was a ticking time bomb but I wouldn’t have expected something like this. I hope he rots in prison, what a sick individual.
